Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy

hpss

Learn to think critically about life's most enduring questions concerning God, morality, knowledge, law, and human nature.

Exploring these subjects encourages a love for truth, enables you to examine and clarify your beliefs, and can help you cultivate a distinctively Christian understanding of the world and human life. One may even argue that Philosophy is the most practical major. Malone offers a major, minor, and liberal arts concentration in philosophy. Majors can choose one of three tracks: general, law, or theology.
